The logistics, the piles of order forms, the pressure to handle parents’ cash and huge chunks of time out of your schedule?
All the while, parents are bored of the same poses, backgrounds and ‘packages’ they get tied into. Where’s the choice?
DE Schools is changing all that.
We take both traditional and expressive photos of each child, with a streamlined process taking just the same time as a usual shoot. Choice for parents, efficiency for you.
Parents get secure access to an online portal where they can order exactly the photos they want.
This signals an end to all the ordering and payment hassle that usually comes after a school photo shoot.
No more admin for you, unrivalled convenience and range of purchasing options for parents. The result? They spend more and your schools earns more commission.
Our innovative approach to traditional school photography is truly market leading.
We take group photos of whole classes, families and siblings as well as individual pupil portraits. For the individual portraits, we take a range of traditional and expressive shots against different backdrops to give parents a range of options to choose from. We would usually provide three photographers at every shoot and two backdrops in use at all times, we can photograph two pupils at a time. This means we get multiple shots of each pupil in the same time a usual shoot would take.
Of course. All our photographers and site support staff have DBS enhanced level disclosure and years of experience working with children of all ages. They are also all trained to our own Code of Ethics to ensure they work to the high standards you’d expect.
Yes. If required, your school will be provided with a complimentary CD featuring all the shots from our time with you. These can be automatically added to your school system.
Please note that SIMS users will require a licence file from Capita to enable the CD to populate your database automatically. Please contact the CAPITA help desk on 0844 892 2407 regarding licence fees.
Not at all. We provide each child with a unique link through which family and friends can order photos directly through our online ordering system. This means no cash handling or heavy administration for you.
We do indeed. To find out more, email email@example.com or call 01342894009.

If you wish to receive your child’s photos via their school, there is a cut-off date after which orders would be charged postage and packaging. This is usually around two weeks after the photoshoot. However, if you’re happy to have the photos to be delivered directly to your address, you can do that at any time by ordering online, subject to a small postage and packaging charge.
Yes. We take family group and sibling photographs. Just make sure this is arranged with your child’s school beforehand.
